$ 425.00

Georgia Patricio is a daughter of Lucy Juanico and a granddaughter of Joselita Ray and learned to make pottery from her mother.  Each piece is coil built and patined with wild spinach and clay slips.  This jar is painted with a complex pattern.  The jar has a series of  24 Mimbres women encircling the shoulder.  They are holding hands.  Below is a checkerboard snow design over a detailed rising and setting sun pattern patined with fine-lines. Weaving above and below the sun “rays” is a rainbow painted with a rectangular pattern.  The variety of geometric shapes on the graceful form gives the jar a very modernist appearance.  It is signed on the bottom, “G. Patricio”.
